Ancient Beauty Ritual: Monoi Oil Tahiti

Need to restore your faith in humanity?

In Tahiti, the ritual of soaking gardenia blossoms in coconut oil to create ‘Monoi Oil’, is a thing. The resulting concoction is fragrant and profoundly healing as a massage lubricant, skin softener or natural hair treatment. Optimal accompaniments: a comfortable beach chair, the shade of a palm tree, fresh coconut water and a self satisfied smile.
